This week in food porn



For those looking for a new food porn fix, a friend recently referred me to the most hardcore site on the net: Smitten Kitchen. Lock the kitchen door and enjoy.

It's been quite a long time since I baked anything, but this weekend I dusted off the ol' KitchenAid and made a batch of that site's pumpkin swirl brownies. Pumpkin AND chocolate in the same recipe? Yes! I admit that it wasn't quite the taste revelation that I had anticipated, but they still turned out to be pretty tasty. I'm going to make another batch for my work's Thanksgiving lunch on Thursday*.

*In addition to being known as that iPod guy, I anticipate being referred to as that guy who cooks by my co-workers.

Dude, when I saw the words "Smitten Kitchen" on your blog - I thought I had gone to the wrong site by mistake. I luuuurrrrvvv food porn. I frequent a web forum devoted to food and that is a highly quoted blog. I'll have to send you the links to some of the better food blogs I've found.
Start with
http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/
(if I remembered html, I could make that a hyperlink, but I don't). You will love the Pioneer Woman. She's awesome and her food is near criminal.

KPMD - What, you stopped frequenting "ER" fan sites? I briefly checked out Pioneer Woman and I liked what I saw. Thanks.

Denae - Only if you send me one of those pumpkin martinis.
